Kentucky Delight

My Aunt Millie would make this, but I think she called it something else. Anyway I found this in my Kentucky Hospitality cook book and it is the same thing. She and Uncle Jimmy and the kids (5) would come to visit almost every summer. Mom would make the angel food cake, Aunt Millie would make whatever she called this, Dad and Uncle Jimmy would sip bourbon and supervise all us kids making homemade ice cream. I'm talking turn the crank kind of freezing ice cream. It really wasn't to bad with 8 of us to churn. Not once do I remember Dad or Uncle Jimmy taking a turn churning.

No one thought anything about the fact there was bourbon in this, everyone ate it.
